Slovenia plans to introduce an electronic vignette, which would be checked on its highways by a system of cameras.
A similar solution is already being applied in Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania.
For several months now, announcements have been coming from Slovenia of a new vignette system, and now the Ljubljana newspaper Delo has published another announcement of that new way of charging road toll, which is to come into force as of Dec. 1, 2021 for vehicles of up to 3.5 tons.
Instead of buying a sticker, as the practice has been so far, the license plate number is given at the point of sale, the vignette is paid for and thereby the vehicle is registered in the system.
The vignette will be valid from the date of purchase to expiry (seven days, one month, six months or one year).
Announcements from the competent Ministry of Transportation also mention the option of a slight price cut due to lower costs, but that will be known only after the new road toll collection system has come into effect.
